We have a Brother MFC -8500 fax machine. Every day


The Drum unit is a consumable.

Buy a new Drum from Staples , Office Max etc and replace it soon.
It will stop and refuse to print when a certain page count is reached.

Error code "change drum soon


This is NOT an error code...the machine is simply telling you that it has run/printed a certain number of pages and it will soon be time to replace the drum.

Intellifax 2800 does not register new drum. I put in new drum and it is extremely light copies and is stll telling me to replace drum soon


If you replaced the drum with a new one, then a special plastic piece with slots in it will be ejected. This will reset the "Replace Drum" message. Now the light print is probably due to the toner needing replacing. When you put in a new drum, it needs new toner too. Unfortunately, most people replace the toner into the old drum, which does no good and becomes wasted. NEW DRUM NEW TONER. Now if you have replaced the old drum with another old drum, you won't get the reset done properly and the new drum won't load any toner either. Perhaps you accidentally removed the plastic sheet when you replaced the drum? Well then, find the piece and run it through the paper feed, it will then reset. Best of luck

2800 will not recieve faxes


Some models will actually stop working whenever a drum message is displayed.
Remember, you do not need a drum to fax out (only to print confirmations) so i would go ahead and change the drum.
Ons ome models you can adjust to how low you want to set it or remove it all together.
It will store it in memory for a while (providing you do not turn off the machine, and print as soon as you replace the toner)
